Most western people love the concept of “FIJI TIME “ but struggle with the reality. But “FIJI TIME” is not just a western excuse for slow service, it is a way of life. It really means enjoying the passage of time, in the moment, without being impatient to see what’s next. We strongly urge you during your time here to try and get into that moment. Turn off your phone. Don`t answer emails. Ignore Facebook. Wander along the beach. Climb some rocks. Look through some rock pools to see what you can find. Relaxation is not just about having a cocktail by the pool. It`s far more serious than that.

Get up and watch the sunrise over the ocean and then go back to bed. Get up in time to watch the sunset. Do this with your kids or partner or just on your own. Take some time to sit with the staff. You may not say anything but just sitting in a friendly companionship is good for the soul. Fijians spend hours sitting with each other saying nothing. We can learn a lot from this.

Learning to relax is a joy. Fijians are the masters and it is no coincidence that this is the happiest place on earth.
